Dan Conley, Jimmy Brumbaugh Officially Out As Syracuse Assistant Football Coaches

Update: Marrone tells Brent Axe that Dan Conley and Jimmy Brumbaugh are still under contract, but "will not be coaches on the field" and "free to pursue other opportunities." Which is very weird.

Original: As first reported by The Juice Online back in December, defensive assistant coaches Dan Conley and Jimmy Brumbaugh have been let go by Doug Marrone.

The delay between initial report and official announcement seems to have been related to contract end dates. Hence Marrone's response "all coaches are under contract" when initially asked about the report.

Conley is a Syracuse icon. A two-time All Big East First Teamer and a member of the All-Century Team, he's been the team's linebacker coach since 2008. He was the last coach to remain from the Greg Robinson Era. He also has strong recruiting ties in Pennsylvania that will be tough to replace.

Meanwhile, Brumbaugh originally came to Syracuse in 2010 as the defensive line coach but focused on defensive tackles this past year. Tim Daoust was brought on to handle the defensive ends.

The AP's John Kekis is reporting that former Michigan Wolverines and Indianapolis Colts linebacker Steve Morrison is in line for one of the open spots, assumedly as LB coach. Morrison has been Eastern Michigan's LB coach since 2010 and spent a good deal of time with Western Michigan before that.
